Lenovo W530 - Mobile Workstation

 

 

We use two systems for SSD testing. The desktop runs a majority of the tests and the Lenovo W530 runs the notebook power tests as well as the real-world file transfer benchmark.

 

 

ATTO Baseline Performance

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 2.34

 

ATTO is used by many disk manufacturers to determine the read and write speeds that will be presented to customers.

In our testing, we achieved just over 556MB/s read performance, an impressive feat for a 120GB SSD. When writing data we hit just under 530MB/s, but that speed didn't come at the lower end of the graph where we normally see it. The BP4 120GB drops off around 100MB/s when writing data at larger block sizes.
